Learn The Latest News From The World Of Printers

Aug 23, 2008
We live in a world where even though products have just been launched they are half way to being rendered obsolete by the latest technology. Printers are no exception with new generations of compact all-in-one WiFi printers flooding the market which is why it is essential to keep up to the minute with industry news. This is a summary of the hottest printer news fresh off the press.

Portable printers are taking over. If you really are that busy you have to print your photos on the train en-route to the office then you need to take a vacation, but with todays wonderful modern technology you can and that is what counts. The Canon PIXMA iP100 portable printer hit the market in May and is aimed at both business and personal users.

It follows the Canon Selphy CP 750 which was 139GBP in 2007, but no can be picked up for under 100GBP. Despite the compact design and ease of use the print quality was poor in print areas of low detail , however it was portable if nothing else. The PIXMA is a vast improvement however costs 200GBP or 250GBP with the battery pack.

Polaroid also launched a new portable printer model. The inkless mobile printer called Zink hit the UK market renamed and rebranded as the Polaroid PoGo. It is the size of a large smart phone and the printing process takes 60 seconds from the click of a button, the prints even come with a sticky back so that you can stick them to your friends. It is a straight forward way to print photos from your mobile via Bluetooth.

As with many other markets there is a certain amount of financial unrest and the CEO of Kodak has spoken out on the matter. Antonio Perez stated that the cost of aluminium has risen 75 percent in one year and the price of oil had doubled and that is the reason why a market price hike is necessary in places over 20 percent. Later this was claimed to be inaccurate by the European PR Director Patrick Hamilton as it was only set to affect photographic paper and chemistry.

The portable printers as well as other models might start to feel the effects of the current financial climate so now might be the time to buy with the cheapest prices being found online. When preparing to purchase any product do research online by reading impartial reviews and comparisons with other leading products.
